PITTI FRAGRANZE
no.15


september 2017

written JULIA AHTIJAINEN

PITTI FRAGRANZE the best display of international artistic perfumery brands, that takes places in Florence, focused this time on sustainability, a hot topic that is abused and more often used for marketing leverage rather than for executing real changes. In perfumery, sustainability is still a very “fresh” topic and for this reason Pitti Fragranze no.15 dedicated some attention to it through a series of talks stepping on the frontiers of sustainability and exotic spices.

The brands and novelties that caught LE MILE’s attention were:

Naomi Goodsir Parfums presentation of a new Nuit de Bakélite, decorated by unique silicone pieces by artist Tzuri Gueta. The latest perfume is created by Isabelle Doyen and is an interpretation of the nocturnal flower tuberose. It hints to the premise of a narcotic lady – green, obsessive and addictive. The spirit of Naomi Goodsir Parfums follows the lineage of traditional independent perfume houses. Her scents are elegant, timeless, and bold, formulated around the most noble raw materials of artistic perfumery.
In collaboration with Maison Kitsuné, Heeley launched new Note de Yuzu, a fragrance that contains the energy of Japanese Yuzu, with a fresh and fruity aroma that develops with soft sensuality across the skin, as an evocation of the traditional Japanese Yuzu bath. James Heeley is in constant evolution with a collection that currently counts 17 unique fragrances, each one of which is created in France.

DI SER natural fragrances are created with plant-based alcohol and water only, inspired by Japan's traditional culture of scent and the perception named "Kō". It is a state of mind in Japan, a "way" or "Dō", a spiritual culture of the non-visible. According to this philosophy, one "listens" to odors rather than "smells" them. 

Beaufort London presented the new fragrance Iron Duke, a tribute to Arthur Wellesley, Duke Of Wellington. Perfumer Julie Dunkley created a strikingly powerful fragrance with animalic depths – an apparition of the celebrated horseman, warrior politician and sartorial pioneer. The fragrance is a first release of the ‘Revenants’, a new collection of olfactory impressions of gures from Britain’s past. Characters from our history whose presence lingers, subtly.

PARCO 1923 is a project that arised from a passion and gratitude towards native land, the National Park of Abruzzo. These Old-Growth Forests, where the centenary trees serve as protecting fathers for delicate flowers that only grow there. The decision to stop the Marsican Brown Bear extermination came true in 1923 when the royal seal proclaimed the birth of one of the most ancient parks in Europe. Here is the olfactory proof of it all.

Susanne Kaufmann organic treats are effective and especially compatible. Susanne Kaufmann comes from the Bregenz Forest, a unique valley in the Alps where the knowledge of the healing powers of nature is passed down from generation to generation. She began to realise this idea in a very special place, the Susanne Kaufmann SPA in Hotel Post Bezau. Together with a team of pharmacists and dermatologists, she developed powerful results-oriented products that better different skin types worldwide.

With 220 brands from all over the world, Pitti Fragranze reconfirmed its high criteria of research, selection and great attention to quality.

HER CRIMSON
Milena Wojhan


september 2017
written Boah Kim

It is impossible to be disappeared in this way as a being. A beautiful but somehow shadowy woman.
She just vanished in a split-second. I’ve been following, sneakingly peeping on her for the last couple of days with this dismal weather – it seemed to be perfectly in synch with her heroin-chic aesthetic.

 
 

 

At a first glance, I thought she was waiting for something or someone, though without any hope. She was leaning on the window looking outside with a despair, as if she could detect some tracks of other beings that she had been desperately longing for. Or, it is also possible that she had been chased by someone because there were some moments that she was extremely trembling with fear and horror. Yes, her flamboyant crimson outfit did not bode well for her future – it already made her looking like a victim of a crime scene. 

JADA_VIMB_10.jpg

After the long-haul of my observation, the bizarre moment came in a flash. It was the moment that she arrived this dark hallway, when her lashes started to quiver in a dim light. With the blank eyes she was gazing into something, which I assumed that she had been waiting for or chased by, yet, I couldn’t sense anyone else but her. Driven by some mysterious spirit, she was taking the hesitating steps forward. She jumped into the eternal staircase, landed on the cold floor, and her cheek slowly flushed crimson.

LE MILE Magazine presents their new collection >>O - The Better Place<< designed by Barbara Schmidt. The designer has been working for KAHLA since 1991. Taking on a leading role in the reorientation of the company, she has been awarded with more than 40 design awards. 
The new series is highly limited to only a few multifunctional pieces. And still, it offers all the essential functions of tableware. Its distinct fold on the upper side of the product offers new opportunities to creativity and was inspired by the technique of origami. The chef now can stage his culinary creations and is able to divide all pieces into two zones: There is space for the food and a surface for holding the dish.

ZHI Chen Collection >>Playground<<


september 2017
 

Playground is an all-knitwear collection that conveys playfulness and lightness while the garments are underpinned by highly intricate and sophisticated fabric structures. The elaborate patterns, rich colours and distinct textures are all knitted into integral pieces of seamless fabric and remind us on works of Alexander Calder who has influenced the bright colors and blocky shapes used by the designer in this collection. Playground offers a new knitwear that renders smooth surface that bears intricacy within a harmonious whole, as if the fabrics are born this way, natural and pristine. This revolutionary collection redefines knitwear.

 

 
I AM CHEN x LE MILE Magazine
 


"Fashion design for a long time had been looked down upon and seen as superficial. It then has become fashionable for designers to throw around concepts and impose ideas on the garments. Further, there exists this idea that being sleepless is the necessity of good work. Why couldn’t we just be happy and healthy to enjoy the process of design? In last a few months at the London College of Fashion, I found a knitting machine sitting around and it instantly became my new toy. I happily played it to create garments that simply satisfies my aesthetics. I call this collection Playground."

When it comes to action cameras, GoPro is the first name people think of, not only because of leading the market and being the most used camera when it comes to capture action situations but also because of its innovative technology and high standard image quality.

 

GOPRO X LE MILE STUDIOS Myanmar beach

GoPro´s latest flagship camera, the Hero5 Black still has the same rectangular shape as its forerunner (the Hero4 Black) but there are some very impressive physical developments that makes the Hero5 Black so unique on the action camera market. The camera is now waterproof to 33 feet without any separate case and contains a touchscreen that navigates the user through the menu, easily. And if you feel like you need it much easier, just talk to your GoPro as it offers a voice control in seven languages. You can give commandos on taking a photo, recording a scene or switching off. But if you´re surfing or biking downhill and the wind is rushing it may happen that the camera won´t follow your commando, or yelling, or screaming... So better use manual operations for tricky situations. Its the first GoPro camera that has built-in GPS that geotags your photos and its image resolution (1080 p) is excellent and much sharper than its predecessors -

GOPRO X LE MILE STUDIOS

especially, its filming quality is brilliant. The new Karma collection is fully compatible with the latest Hero5 Black camera and can be used with the Karma drone or grip. During our journey to Burma we had taken the GoPro camera with us and installed it with the pro waver from Walimex that made possible to have not another shaky GoPro video but incredibly smooth recorded moments. Whether you jump, hike, bike, surf, or run… the waver keeps your shots steady and makes the result look so much better and professional.

 

We´re glad we were there and had GoPro Hero5 Black with us... GoPro, thanks for capturing moments with us, too.
